Mid-Atlantic Fasteners

 Mid-Atlantic Fasteners, a subsidiary of Carlson Industries recently took occupancy of a newly built 8,000 SF building in Delmar, DE. It is located on Route 13 north of Delmar adjacent to the FurnitureLand Distribution Center. Mid-Atlantic Fasteners is pleased to be able to broaden their service by offering a regional location for their customers across Delmarva. They were previously located in the Northwood Industrial Park in Salisbury, MD. 

Founded in 1949, Mid-Atlantic Fasteners is one of the leading companies that provides a range of products for the industrial and construction industries. The company provides a range of products that include pneumatic and cordless nailers, screw systems, pneumatic staplers, nails, staples, screws, bolts, nuts and washers, generators, and air compressors and accessories. It offers additional products, such as framing hardware, power tools, saw blades, drill bits, adhesives, caulk guns and foam tools. Mid-Atlantic Fasteners also provides ladders, safety supplies, bags, belts, levels and hand tools. The company offers interior packaging, carton marking, strapping, tying, palletizing, unitizing and stretch wrapping solutions. It also provides installation and repair services. Mid-Atlantic Fasteners maintains more than 20 locations in the East coast. The company is a part of Carlson Holdings/Systems.
Carlson Systems is a leading distributor of the most recognized brands of construction and packaging machines, tools and supplies in the industry. The company has evolved over the past 66 years to encompass over 60 locations in the United States and Mexico.

This success story had its humble beginning in Omaha, Nebraska, when in 1947, Carl and Julia Carlson founded Carlson Stapler and Supply with nothing more than a $350 cash investment, a used file cabinet, and their own enthusiasm.

In the decades that followed, the company added to its product line and expanded its territory throughout the Midwest, eventually adding southwestern locations as well. The company name was simplified to Carlson Systems, but kept the familiar CSS logo and the founders© philosophy to provide the highest quality products along with outstanding service and support to our customers.
In 2006, Carlson Systems was joined by Mid-Atlantic Fasteners. Sharing a similar beginning, Mid-Atlantic Fasteners was established out of a garage in Baltimore, MD just after World War II as a Duo-Fast distributor. Most of their early customers were upholstery shops, furniture manufacturers and millwork companies. Primarily serving the mid-Atlantic region of the east coast, the business grew over the years and began selling competitive lines, which allowed them to expand into new markets with new customers.

Another acquisition occurred in 2013 with the addition of Western Tool Supply Company. Western Tool Supply was founded in 1982, with its headquarters in Salem, Oregon. The addition of Western Tool Supply expanded Carlson System©s presence in the northwestern U.S. The companies were a good fit because, like Carlson Systems, Western Tool Supply had a strong devotion to customer satisfaction through breadth of product, product expertise, great order fulfillment, with the added benefit of tool and equipment repair service.
